A VITAL QUESTION FOR TACOMA The railroad question in Tacouiu is the vital question of tie present day. It com pletely overshadows all other*. I'nless the city can break the Northern Pacific monopoly which now retard- it growth and iU prosperity, there can be, in the end, but one result. Other competing cities, with two or more transcontinental railroad*, will get so fur ahead in the race for population and prestige that Taeoma will never be able to overtake them. This is the formative period upon Puget Sound. It is the time when the perma nent renters of trade and industry are being developed. Ten years hence Show will either be in the front rank or it will be lagging along , in the rear. M.i these words: Tacoma will NOT be in tile front rank UNLESS IT SE CURES MORK TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROADS. And it must secure them without k>M of time. A waiting policy would be fatal. Now, don't get mad and ny: "The Times [a 'knocking' the town." It is doing nothing of the sort, It is seeking to bring the fact* home to every citizen, to the end that a successful effort may be made to get more railroads here, more people, more • traffic, more prosperity. One trouble with Tacoma has been that a good many people have been content, during the last few years, to dream of the great byeand-bye of the City of Destiny, without doing a single lick to help bring that destiny to pass! Those citizens need to be shaken up, roused up, maddened up, perhaps, m thai II the die. state will lie dissipated and a period of activity precipitated Let us probe into matters still deeper and ask more specific questions. ■ ■ What has Tacoma done, during the last five years,, tO induce cither the Great Northern, the Burlington, the Canadian Pacific, or the Union Pacific, to come this my? Has any public movement hop* Inaugurated to pave the way for these railways into Taeoma? Have public meetings been held, or committees sent to see the differ ent railroad managers to present the advantages of l.uonin. and to offer terminal facilities ,ii other inducements? : Yes. It is only fair to state that one sporadic effort was made about a year mid a half ago to get the Great Northern to come to Tacoma. A committee of ;, business men went over to Seattle, while .las. .T. Hill mi there, and interviewed him as to the possibility of. netting the road. They offered him one-half of the freight business of "the" city 1 if "In* would put down a track from Seattle to 'his point. i Mi. Hill told lUem. . according to their subsequent statements, that be was not yet ready to build to Taeoma. That was the end of the effort to get the Great Northern. A year and a ball has;since elapsed, conditions have changed with the Great Northern and Northern Pacific through the destruction of the merger, and Harriman i* looking towards 1 Puget Sound for Union Pacific traffic." Perhaps Mr.. Hills' views have changed. i\ Perhaps he is now ready to build to Taooina. Who knows? .Nobody ha- been to aw him about the matter for a long time. * Over in Seattle Hill did not build a fine depot, Hut the people never got tired (it demanding one. They fought for it. Committee after committee made life strenuous for Hill until finally he put an end to the importunities by begin ning the actual construction of a $3,000,000 tunnel and depot. ' If the Seattle committees had grown weary the chances are that nothing would have been accomplished up to this time. 'No doubt Mr. Hill has a great many demands made upon his i"a.l lor traffic bet terments and it it quite likely that the most persistent fellows who want thing* are the ones who get the most for their pains. Sit ia time to ginger up in Tacoma and go after Hill and Harriman mid all the rest of them. A fatuitous feeling has certainly prevailed in some quarters that some time or Other the railroads would be forced to come knocking at the gates of Tacoma, apply ' ing for admission and asking on what terms they might enter! - Yes. Some time in the future, when the Northwestern railroads have finished building extensions to towns where they have been invited, joint of them might ™ eon* knocking at the back door of Ta,couta and suggesting that it' a.,, way could be found around the Northern Pacific barricades upon the waterfront/ they would like to come in and do a little business. ' • Let there be an end to such nonsense 1 Tacoma mon the map, .Tticoinu proposes to slay on the may and be up and doing greater things despite the impractical the- * orists, the nursers of animosities; and the mossbacks.' ' '"'•'■ The thing to do first is to frankly acknowledge the fact, that time has been wasted that might have been profitably spent in looking up additional railway facil ities. The next step is to start a movement looking to an invitation to ALL railroad* to come to Tacoma. i :, ;>>w Sriii Some time ago a number of prominent business men and manufacturers din pleased with Air.. Hill's delay in building an extension to Tivcoma agreed together - that they would not send.any freight over the Great Northern until after it had , built its line from Seattle down to this city. .' : It is an open question whether a boycott of this nature would ever bring any con cessions from a man of the stamp of James J. Hill. He is an able lighter, it he is any thing. With all due respect for the business men who are engaged in this boycott. The Times must state that it believes that no good will come of it. Human nature is very much the same the world over, and everybody knows that strong men are not pften driven. With them, as with most other persons of spirit, the cordial handshake will uc ' complish more than the knotted club. The Times is of the opinion that a deputation of prominent citizens sent to sec Mr. Pill at St. Paul, with friendly feeling and a businesslike quality to their proposition for an extension of the Great Northern tracks into Tacoma. would accomplish something. The Times also firmly believes ra the good sense of the large majority of the people of Tacoma. It believes that they will take up this railroad question before it is everlastingly too late, and will do something that will count for the growth of the ? city and will enhance its prosperity. Some complaining business men nave recently said: "Trade is quiet and shows sign* of lagging." One or two have even suggested that it might be freshened up a bit by turning loose the niekel-in-the-slot machines and a few gamblers. Such people have hanging moss on their intellects. - What this city, needs is RAILROADS. , DESECRATION OF THE DEAD Probably because pf a legend of diamonds buried With the bodies, the ancient, tomb of the Livingstons of New York has been desecrated by thieves, two of the metal coffins being carried off and the bones from the others spilled on the floor of the vault. / ( ," ; '[ The meanness of man is immeasurable. The hope for diamonds can make a de mon of him. For greed he will violate the sacredest emotions and desecrate all that the human heart at its best kohls most dear. ■ • • .- This unnameable outrage upon the dust of the founders of one of America's greatest families must send a sickening shudder of disgust throughout Christendom. But let us.remember it is not by any means the first outrage of the kind. It is far from being without precedent. Christian civilization has long tolerated a custom that the foul ghouls of Living ston manor have but brought a little nearer home to ourselves. " For centuries we have robbed the catacombs of earlier man for mummies to set up in public for the vulgarly curious to gawk at. , Yes, we have dragged forth from their resting places the remains of kings, made sacred by the centuries, and put them into cheap shows, and charged, and paid, a, price to stare at them and make funny remarks about them. Scarcely a mound builders' temple in all this Christian land of ours but has been dug into and robbed of it- crumbling bones and poor trinket* - robbed publicly and without shame in the mime of greed or of science. . - We ruthlessly plow up the bones of our own heroic father* and brothers on the liattlcfields, and call it industrial progress. We do these things every day and there is not even decency enough among us for protest. Yer w5»« ■c foul vandal *Ui all «V» precedent Wor*. .m. carries off our • -.---.■ own honored dead for the sake of greed, we throw up our hand* in horror. Why should we? *'■■ Lot us be eonniftent.

ROSIE ANDREWS WRAY'S ROMANCE The story of Hn-ie Andrews Wray makes you feel good all over. Ro*ic's father is a great English business man. He own« large factories on both Rides •■I the ocean, and hit signature i* good for million-. In gpite of his vast inter ests, he found time to become the chum of his daughter, and, perhaps, like a good many parents, he wanted to live too mil' of her life for her. For instance, lie had visions of a grand wedding for Rosie, with a husband who could match million for million. He wanted the man to be an aristocrat, with a plen tiful supply of blue blood, which i- more or less nonsense. Charles C. Wray was assistant superintendent of one of Mr. Andrews' factories. lie i^ a self made youngster, good looking, ambitious, safe. He saw Rocie as she was going through the Works one day, and it was a cane of love first sight. Mr. Wray jost bis position because he loved Ro*ie Andrews; Then be was for bidden to see her, and when that didn't work she was spirited away by her parents, hen young folks love, and know that they have a moral right to love, you might as well try to block a cyclone an to «top them. It i- IV-tiny, Rosi( got word to her lover, packed up her things, and there was a hasty wed ding ceremony performed in Liverpool. Then they took ship for America, buying sec- (las, tickets, because money was no longer plentiful. 2» I The man who knows when be i- "licked" is a true plnlo-ojii.l 1 A fool would have blustered and stormed, and asserted, "She shall never darken my doors again."

It tells of love and spells forgiveness, Mr. Andrews is a good sort. ♦ FREE SPEECH AND ANARCHISM Emma Goldman, tin 1 woulilbe "Red Virgin" of America, started to make a speech in a hall in Philadelphia last week, Before »he had uttered a word the police intervened and stopped the meeting. The police made a mistake. The result of the agitation which was started gave Goldman a lot of free adver tising. The legality of the procedure was mooted, Public sentiment, which despised the woman's doctrines] denounced the interference of the authorities. There was a great hubbub raised about the matter ami Goldman was finally allowed to make her address, She bad a large audience, which she entertained with a mild plea for women's rights. The authorities ou^lit to have permitted her to speak in the first instance, wait ing any expression of anarchistic sentiments. A few score persons would have listened to her and the newspapers would have barely noted her presence in the city. As it was, entile columns were devoted to the discussion, the public interest was aroused, and Goldman scored a victory over tlie authorities. In England, as everyone knows, agitators of whatsoever "ism" are given a wide latitude. It Is not unusual to witness a score of wild-eyed enthusiast" holding forth on .1 Sunday afternoon around the statue of the hero of Trafalgar in London, Even the red banner of anarchism is permitted to flaunt itself and its disciple's allowed to discourse their doctrines. John Hull put- these people on exhibition as .1 sort of cii- us tor the amusement of the populace, • In this country, where the laws have restricted free speech, drawing the line at any public expression of anarchism, the authorities of cities are sometimes put in a delicate situation. The only safe method, howmwv is to allow any citizen to speak his piece so long as he does not utter sentiments which the law classes as treason: THE MONROE DOCTRINE A German professor has written a book to prove the alleged absurdity of the Monroe doctrine. He says it was a good sort of a bluff in 'Monroe's nine, but that it is now obsolete and will lie rejected by the American people. ' Maybe. . ' Bat it will be a long time before the American people are so convinced. If there is any political doctrine which is distinctive of our^reed as a people it is the Monroe doctrine. , li there is any doctrine tor which the people of Hie United Stales would readily iijiht it is the dociyi if Monroe. » We are becajgrtnj fr world power, ami not all the people are agreed as to the wis dom of our mixing in the affairs of the world, but all are united in support of the historic demand that the republics of the western hemisphere be permitted to work out their destiny without let or hindrance from European governments. Again and again, anil 111 l.v. this government has said .to the governments of Europe when they would have interfered with the affairs of our neighbors of South and Central America — , Hands off! ;,.. jj ~;j J When the interiytrtgMft^rribunaf at The Hgaue was constituted the United States forced into the agr<!t>»rfPnt I stipulation that nothing therein'!contained .should be per mitted to interfere" with its guardianship of the western continent. It would be unwise to predict that the doctrine may not be so modified some day as to lit the exigencies of world polities, into which we are so rapidly driving, bur today the live wire of American politics is the Monroe doctrine.

In tkil lot in it is but a harmless butterfly, living on liquids which it sips through a liairhke tongue called the proboscis. In May or June it begins to lay its eggs and they are so exceedingly small that the most careful inspection of an infested gar ment would Dot reveal them to the naked eye. Of course the whole object is to prevent i lie miller from laying its eggs in the gar ment. Clue deposited there they will hatch in due time, and the larvae, or wains, which we call moths, begin their feast. Some moths will eat cotton, the buffalo bug being one of the moet vorac ious. To kill moths in ■ earp*t, set a hot flatiron on the spot infested. The use of ■tript of tar paper will prevent the laying of eggs under the edge of the carpet. The miller seems to know instinctively th.it the best place for its eggs is a soiled spot in a woolen garment or a piece of fur. Thorough cleansing is half the battle; packing away is the other half. OF ALL THE clkanskks USED, BENZINE IS THE BEST; and of all the oiiomuo detarmta, TAR PAPfS Cbnfld ing felti IS THE MOST EFFEI TIVK and at the same tune cheap and convenient.
